Del Monte Case Study
Del Monte aligns supply chain with finance using Anaplan
  • Out-of-date planning tool was slow and expensive—costs were incurred for even simple changes to the blueprint.

  • Multiple sources of data and manually linked planning processes, such as master production scheduling (MPS), material requirement planning (MPR), and customer service allocation report planning (CSAR) led to unreliable planning scenarios.

  • Inability to collect and process information in a timely manner.

  • Transportation and shipment planning manually linked to supply plans.

  • No regular financial integration in S&OP process.
